If the color or finish of top you want is not listed, we can probably custom make it for you. Our master craftsman, Jeff Keyes, can make tops from plexiglass (clear or black) and many exotic veneers such as mahogany, ebony, mappa burl, cedar, poplar, hickory, anigre, lacewood, walnut and oak. Prices are reasonable. Email us at listening@virtueaudio.com for special requirements.

Every unit is assembled to order. Since every "Melissa" unit is built for you™, a restocking fee of $50 applies to all returns.

Absolutely in love with music now April 20, 2012
Reviewer: Brandon D from Murrieta, CA United States  
I found Virtue Audio through word of mouth on forums while researching for the best Tripath amplifiers.  My budget was around $300, I was willing to go for the ONE or TWO, but they were out. However, the reviews and testimonies were so strong that I went for the Sensation.  I waited 40 days, but it was worth it!  Customer service was top-notch, they responded to last-minute requests right away.  Considering the team is just a couple people or so, I'm not complaining at all.  
So the amp came home, and I was quite impressed when I plugged it in.  Now that it is breaking in nicely, the sound is absolutely fluid... it's AMAZING and LOVELY.  Virtue Audio is the best
